Hello everyone,

While waiting for the delivery of my new phone, I'm starting to look for accessories. The first thing I want is a nice case. I like the design of the Otterbox Commuter series since it looks like it will slip in and out of my jeans pockets, due to the hard shell outer case. I like the fact that it has a nice silicone inner liner as well.

Some of the other cases out there, like the Otterbox defender, seem like really rugged cases, but I've read some reviews that they are hard to get in and out of pockets and attract lint/dust.

I know there are some case junkies out there who have tried nearly all of the various cases out there, so I'm asking for your help.

I need a case that:

  1. protects my phone whether it's laying face up or face down
  2. has some level of drop protection, i.e. cushioning/silicone liner
  3. is easy to slide in and out of my jeans pockets
  4. stays put and doesn't move around or reposition itself
  5. allows complete access to all buttons, speakers, ports, etc. on the phone
  6. (I don't use a belt clip, so I'm not concerned if it doesn't have one or isn't an option)

Thanks in advance from this Android defector. ;-)

I use speck candyshell cases and I think they are the best. Soft silicone inside with hard plastic on the out. It slides in and our of your pockets very easily and doesn't bulk up the phone too much.

Try to search Google for this Case: Artwizz Flip AZ589BB Leather Case for iPhone 4 / 4S. It looks something like this:
$iPhone-4-4S-Artwizz-Flip-Leather-Case-AZ589BB-Black-1312-p.jpg
It will protect the screen and the back of your phone. But, I prefer covers :)

I agree 100%

I am using some sort of ifrogz case. It's got little holes in it, like a screen on a screen door. It's very very nice, and I can hardly notice it is there

Basically any of the hard shell glossy finish cases on eBay meet these requirements. And the glossy ones slide in and outta your pocket easily.

How does the rubber fit round the edge in the front? Is it loose at all?

yes, I have a candyshell also a otterbox defender and a switcheasy case. the candy shell has a tight lip around your phone. if you get a blk case it will show every little scratch.

My Speck fits very well. As far as it showing every little scratch, it does. I don't care though. It's there to protect my phone, not look pretty. I'm a function over form kind of guy.
